Volunteer Virtually with Downtown Women's Center

Open Opportunity

About

Our partner, Downtown Women's Center, is looking for remote volunteers to help during COVID-19. This is the perfect opportunity to LOOPin and bring some goodness into the world!

The Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is the only organization in Los Angeles focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women.

DWC envisions a Los Angeles with every woman housed and on a path to personal stability. Its mission is to end homelessness for women in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, employment, and advocacy.

Founded in 1978, DWC was the first permanent supportive housing provider for women in the U.S.

Some of their remote volunteer opportunities include:
  • Grocery shopping for a resident
  • Walking a resident's dog
  • Running errand for a resident, like picking up a prescription
  • Texting, calling, or online chatting with a resident online to keep them "company"
  • Ad hoc tasks as needed (e.g. researching best prepaid phones, telecommuting software, etc.)
LOOPin. Now. Your Community Needs You.
